A Walker for the Walker!

I fully realize that I like to operate under a lot of disclaimers and today's post is no different. So here goes: I KNOW that walkers are not recommended. I have read the research, spoken to my doctor, and am fully aware of the risks. I also know that if you limit a child's time (one of the risks is that long-time exposure can hurt a baby's hips) in one and don't allow them to head down stairs or any other major roadways (the other main risk is that they will hurt themselves heading over an obstacle they can't see), they will be fine. My mom did a lot of research and looked up the consumer reports on a few different kinds and headed out and bought him one. Boy-oh-boy does he LOVE it!!!!! Here's a video from the first time we put him one!

I had to laugh when I read the "important information" that came with the walker. Did you know that once the child is walking on their own, you shouldn't place them in a walker. Hard to believe. But I guess the experts got together and decided it could be dangerous to allow a child who could walk, to be placed in a walker. Really, someone out there couldn't have figured that out all by themselves? They really needed this "important message"?
